In today’s Creative Burst we will be looking at the wonderful world of nature. Sarah Webb takes inspiration from rain rhymes and haiku poetry and encourages you to be inspired by nature too!
August First Fridays
Join us on Friday, 5 August, from 6pm for First Fridays! This month we have some very exciting pop-up events, including an interview with Conner Habib, who will be in conversation with Sarah Maria Griffin about his debut novel Hawk Mountain and a reading by writer Suad Aldarra who will be reading from her remarkable new memoir, I Don’t Want to Talk About Home. It is also a great chance to catch our new exhibitions, Into the Island, which focuses on Peig Sayers and the Blasket storytelling tradition, and Lost in a Ceo, the accompanying video installation by Gary Coyle. The Commons Café will also be open late.
Please note all events are limited capacity and first come, first served. Your ticket does not guarantee entry to the events, just to the exhibitions.
Have you ever seen a dragonfly? Today’s Bright Sparks Creative Burst is about all creatures great and small. Join Sarah Webb for stories, word games and poems inspired by animals – with a cameo by Sarah’s dog, Lucky!
In this Bright Sparks Creative Burst explore hidden stories by using everyday junk found around the house to inspire us to create some original pieces of work. With a little inspiration from Sarah Crossan’s #wearethepoets postcards, Sarah Webb uses blackout poetry and highlights words to make a poem. Download the materials to create some poetry or prose of your very own!
